Video: TRC Seals TNL Transmission Towers Following Criticism Of President Sirisena

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) which comes directly under President Maithripala Sirisena has moved to seal transmission towers operated by TNL, the electronic media outfit owned by Shan Wickremesinghe.

The TRC’s sudden decision follows a programme on comments made by the President at a ceremony commemorating the late Ven Madoluwawe Sobitha Thero where the presented said that recent statements made by him indicated a certain confusion (vyaakoolathaavaya).

The commentary included reference to contradictions in various statements made by Sirisena with regard to the 100-days programme and also implied that he had a hand in the controversial deal to purchase a Russian ship which, TNL suggests was the reason for the Navy Commander’s tenure not being extended as well as the resignation of the then Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, Karunasena Hettiarachchi.

Meanwhile TNL has said that the TRC has sealed its transmission station in Polgahawela and that those who carried out this order were in the process of removing equipment from the premises. TNL expressed disgust at this move in a context where the station has made all relevant payments to the TRC.

Colombo Telegraph reliably learns that TRC personnel are on their way to TNL’s transmission station in Karagahatenne, possibly to seal that facility as well.

Incidentally, Shan Wickremesinghe is the brother of Prime Minister and and the leader of the United National Party, Sirisena’s main coalition partner in the ‘Unity Government’. He is by training a broadcast engineer and was the founder of Sri Lanka’s first television station, ITN.

However, Shan Wickremesinghe is not known to toe the line of his bother’s party.

    The most important extrapolation from the events unfolding is that the President is solidifying his fear laced, agenda driven pact with the Rajapakses. Finally, towards the end of his reign Sirisena, Gotabaya and Mahinda Rajapakse will solidify their alliance. I think that the emotional demeanor of this man is a put up. He is trying to set the stage for justification of his final pact from now itself. This I doubt will end well for him, or the country. Sri Lanka is getting closer and closer to the end of the little democracy there is.

      The man who boasted for bringing “democracy” to Sri Lanka via “Yahapalanaya” is becoming the number-one-dictator. President can’t take dissension. He doesn’t tolerate opinion against him. As said before, very soon, Colombo-Telegraph will be the only forum where people could express their honest opinion as, unlike other places, CT will never be bowed by pressure to remove news items/articles that carry fair criticism against the President.
      .
      With this new “Presidential tyranny” against the freedom of speech & expression, and political & civil rights, I have serious doubts about future free&fair elections. If the President re-contest, then other strong contenders along with media will be suppressed. If so, even the PM won’t get a chance to contest against the President, as he will be blackmailed through Bond Report.
      .
      In 2015-January when they came into power both President/PM acted as despots. As against Parliamentary democracy, President sacked the then PM, DM Jayarantne who had 75% seats in the Parliament and appointed the “Opposition Leader Ranil” as the PM, who had only 20% seats.
      .
      Though limited, we enjoy some freedom today thanks to Wimal’s “Mahinda Sulanga” started in Nugegoda with massive public protests which terrified “Yahapalanaya.” If Mahinda didn’t come back to politics, he would have been in prison along with other political leaders. Country is in one piece today as a result of their nonpareil strength. In 2015, I wrote that there is a “Vulture” hiding inside the “Swan.” But in 2016-2017 I thought I was wrong as I saw some good in him. As we are heading for next Presidential Election I think my first instinct was right. As said over and over, winning the next Presidential Election is not going to be easy unless all-Sinhalese, at least Sinhalese-Buddhists united under one-flag against the world’s first “Tyrannical Good Governance.”

        So why is this “tyrant” of a President according to Champa, not exercising his tyranny over the third class civil servants that sent his beloved Bank Robbery Commission Report containing the names of 118 bribe-taking MPs to the archives without consulting him. Tyrant sometimes, mouse at other times, whenever it suits him?

          I am no supporter of Gotabhaya. And I know it was he who blocked CT, not Mahinda. Intimidation has been used to silence people. I don’t believe in white vans as I don’t see any evidence but I know people were terrified of them for “some reason.”
          I hope MR will not nominate Gotabhaya from JO/SLPP. Even if he did, Gotabhaya will receive a shocking defeat.
          Even his economic policy tallies with Ranil’s. Who wants a second Ranil with a military cap?

      This move spells the beginning of the end for somebody. This throwing caution to the winds approach – almost in 20-twenty mode – is provocative and confrontational and so blatantly ‘in your face’ it is unlikely RANIL will fall for it. For all his munificient display of his well chronicled failings , Ranil knows when not to offer a shot!

      Actually come to think of it, he might have made an excellent opening batsman!

          PLease BE AWAY, you the like ones practising oldest profession for your selfish gains have not the least right to add the kind of thoughts. It is thousand times better that ballige putha Rajapakshe was defeated, but we never thought My3 WOULD behave supportively that 16-member idiots.
          We just want everyone s benefit in this country by promoting real good governance. From the dayone ballige putha started an underground vicious program human shielding lanken buddhist community. That condom supporter Wimal sakkilaya Weerawanse your bed partner was part of it.
          If i were president, I would not be that passive and throw the ball on UNP each time inability is going to be more obvious. We know the guy has not the basic education to lead a nation but he is lesser evil than former ballige putha who looted and left ruined the state.
          I have several questions as to why th current men stay that much in terms of the mountanous debts left by former man. Srilanken alone made over few hundreds billions of losses but today nothing is being discussed.
          Their MEDIA men Derana and Hiru have become Heros by brinign even tiny issues of ballige putha into the scence. Danno danith Champawathie. We know even if you may most likely be a carrier to HIV virus, we dont want you to be that low level adding the kind of statements. We are okay having chased awy the ballige putha that way, but we are not very satisfied the way Mr President reacts as if he has not a spine.

      I think you are right he is cutting a deal. Most probably he will serve another term as a Puppet president, MR will be PM with powers and Gota will take defense ministry.

      After two terms he cannot contest and Gota will contest for the Presidency. MR will hold the PM post as long as he can or until he thinks Namal is ready.

      Mr. Sirisena’s challenge, though, is going to be dealing with the Rajapaksas when all of this comes to fruition because that gang has given evidence of being like the elephant which never forgets!

    This is stupidity @ its prime. My3 making such blatant statement means that either he:
    1. Has insomnia
    2. Or wants to forget his past deliberately.

    In either case, he is not fit to the first citizen of Sri Lanka.

    My3 has a degenerated acumen making him one of the worst backward leaders of our political history. My3 has to start executing his powers as the supreme leader of the country, or else he will go down in the annals of history as the worst leader post independence of our country.

    In fact he has already earned that status, and ONLY some revolutionary policy decisions can change that cognition of the common people.

    So My3, either you make some revolutionary changes that the common voter base demands , or you perish for ever.

    Watch and wait! Desperation takes all forms of foolish steps, and its just a matter of time. Actually, I am sorry for him. Basically, he was a good man but never cut to be a ruler. We all had much hope for him and his administration. The British government recognized that the West had to assist and support him and that is why they extended an invitation to meet the queen and others in the U.K. But he surrounded himself with idiots and family whose vision is typically within closed walls. First, he should have removed himself from the SLFP, appointed only about 28 really good people to Ministries, not known corrupt ones like R.K. To give him the Finance is like giving the chicken pen to a fox! When the Central Bank balloon went up, if I were M.S, I would have IMMEDIATELY sacked Mahendran, suspended all P.T activities and closed their accounts pending full investigations by the C.I.D. I would also insist on the “Minister” resigning, even from his Parliamentary position. If not, sack. I would also have insisted on action against all corruption. That would have made M.S the Parakrama Bahu of modern times. Now, its gone and gone forever.

    Sorry, Mr. President. You were never cut-out to be the Leader but we are impressed by your courage in contesting a most powerful and ruthless ruler in 2015.

    We hope that somehow, this nation will emerge from the pit of corruption, apathy and hopelssness and that a reliable leader without corrupt motives and with capability will come forth.

      Why have I chosen to commend somebody else’s comment rather than writing my own thoughts? Because I don’t know what to say – so badly have we been let down by the guys who got well-nigh all our votes – that is to say I include the Rajapaksas. Where do we turn now, to whom?

    Yes, from all his recent acts, it’s abundantly clear that Sirisena lost all his bearings. He, day by day putting himself into a corner and into deep hole from which leaping out would be a heculean task. All pitty him, and all those around him rather utterly rubbish lot who are not putting any good sense into his head to behave and act with respect and dignity. Gatecrushing into a solem event, instead of talking good of Rv. Sobitha, he went on triad on up, down and in SL directions wenting all his anger and frustration on all and sundry. We didn’t put him into that place to be like this. He should remember what Churchill said – if one stops to throw stones at the barking dogs, he would never reach his destination. Like what fellow commentators said CT watch out for he is a one in no mode to take up criticism, and mend his ways. All feel sorry for mother Lanka for it’s not be able to find a better leader in all these years to make it a better country for all.

    First Lankaenews blocked by TRC because they disclosed about the Old Russian warship with pictures of Kili Maharaja’s 2 executives in Russia with Sorrysena. Then he cut Travis Sinnaiyah’s neck because reportedly he opposed to buy old warship. Now TNL . Probably next step would be Social Media as recently he expressed his views about social Media. He has to learn from Ranil Wickramasinghe. Sirasa allocate more Air Space to insult RW. Now Sirasa Ratings has gone down due to unfair criticism about UNP and RW, 2nd Citizen of the Country. But RW doesn’t make any complain about Sirasa. Other Electronic and most of the Print Media does the same thing. He started from Shiral Laktilaka, Kili Maharaja’s 2.50 Journos as his Media division, Gota, 16 gang, Galagoda Aththe Nanasara, Madagoda Abetissa, Elle Gunawansa, Iththakande Saddatissa, Dayan Jayatilaka, Maithree Gunaratna and they are people who are advising Sorrysena.

Why for example if 118 to have been gifted funds by PT company to be a blatant lie, but that took ground in local and international media on and on… if that is a lie, why cant the authoriteis take action against the ones that spread lies that way ? I think we dont have proper law provisions to act against .. then why not ministry of justice acts accordingly ? by brinign law reforms as seen in EUROPE lamost every week they can bring any law reforms if tthe prevailing provisons would not meet the expectations. Why our folks lag not bringing even tiny actions shaping up the rotten system ?

        Babansincho,
        What you say is correct. This 118 matter raised by Relasiri Jayasekara. Today Attorney General revealed that there is no such a list exists. Once Relasiri said that not only him but there are other 117 took the money from PTL Rajapaksha Journos going after each and every Parliament members asking weather they took the money or no using media freedom. Even President Secretory made announcement that he is not aware of 118 list. Speaker Karu Jayasuriya also said that there is no such a list and that is also like “Ampare Wanda Paththa” Even then our media hero’s are not accepting it. Somehow they want to use that to sling mud at UNP and Leader.
        Basically our Media personal can be categorized as,
        Rajapaksha Journalists – You can Identify them as they are always hanging around Temples waiting for Rajapakshas.
        Deshapremi Journalists – Ex- Saman R. Gamage – Divaina, Keerthi Warnakulasuriya – Divaina – Shamindra Ferdinando – Divaina – Sanka Amarajith, Chathura Alwis and Chapa Bandara – Derana TV
        Athe Roll Journalists – Mawbima
        Anti Ranil Journalists – Sirasa Journalists.
        Actually we are lack of professional journalists and unbiased journalism.
        We are living in a Country who still believes that “Wanda Pathi” are reality no matter Doctors, Experts and the Govt. says that there is no such a thing. Opportunistic Media use the mentality of the People to plant anything they want without knowing the gravity of it. As you suggest it is not easy to change the system in Sri Lanka because of “Ranaviruwo” and “Safron Robed Thugs” Also we have trade unions such as GMOA protest against everything Govt Suggests. We have “Anthare” who will come to the streets at 4.00PM in week days to protest. They don’t need a reason to protest. We are living in Country like that Babansincho.

    This guy wants to move his personal dealing from China to Russia, permanently. Working with China may end up as a competition when Olds grab the power. Even now, Ranil’s team is much dominant of deals breaking with China. He selcted Thero for this as he is a convient orphan to kick on the butt.

    It says Shan Wicramasinghe is a MEDIA MOGUL and he was the first to head ITN. Why did he work to ITN if he was born rich ?. Now, he owns TNL Radio and Television network.

    When media is given an opportunity to analyse a speech made by a politician no doubt they will look at the content and its impact- this is normal in a media free country. Before, taking action a considered opinion should be sought. For that you need good media advisors.
    TRC is definitely not a place to get that input.

    It has been revealed in a certain media that President Gamarala is mentally unstable and is unfit to be the head of a country. How far this is true remains to be seen!

      “It has been revealed in a certain media that President Gamarala is mentally unstable and is unfit to be the head of a country.”

      Is it an infectious disease? Did he catch it from his son or from Dr Gota while he was acting defense minister?
